Over the years women have been underrepresented in Canada’s construction industry. In 2019, 13.3% of women were employed in the industry, both on and off job sites.1 We celebrate Women in Construction Week to acknowledge, educate and promote the role of women in the construction industry.

Though women are outnumbered in the industry, the rise of women employed in construction has been slowly increasing. In 2019, 5,400 more women entered the construction industry compared to 2018.2 Women working directly on construction projects have increased by almost 1 percent and stand at 4.7% in 2019 compared to 3.8% in 2018.3


Women are better represented in administrative roles and other off-site positions. 41% of women were employed in off-site construction jobs in 2019. However, women are overall still outnumbered across the industry. In Canada, there is a momentum to add more women into the field in the next decade. From the government to industry leaders to trade groups and more, we can all do our part to ensure equal opportunities for women in construction.


We believe in creating equal opportunities within the industry. From administrative to on-site roles, we at Bachly are proud to have a roster of amazing women working on our team over the years.


Take a peek into the tenacious women employed at Bachly.
